“They overbook and management are really rude”
Reviewed August 28, 2008

This is a basic hostel, in a relatively convenient part of Beijing, except up a dark back alley! - it was relatively clean with minimal furnishings. However the managers and staff are really rude and unhelpful.

They had totally overbooked during our stay, and every time we passed the lobby a new person was having an argument with the front desk, so even if you pay up front you will not be guaranteed a room there. When we arrived, even though we had booked 6 months earlier and paid in full up front we were told that they did not have a room for us, and it was only after over an hour of arguing, and when we insisted on an immediate full cash refund that they finally found us a room. There are tvs in the rooms but they are not connected to an aeriel so you can't watch them!

Make sure you have a back up plan if you book here!!

Reviewed August 26, 2008

We stayed at this hostel from 10th to the 13th of August 2008 - in the first week of the Beijing Olympics. We had come to Beijing for a general holiday and had no interest in the Olympics, but of course we had to pay a price that reflected the expectation of excess demand at this time: approx ten times the normal price.

The place is basic, but clean and functional. The bar is friendly, and the kitchens produce good western style food (actually *no* Chinese food at all, but you can get all you can eat of this outside.

The bathrooms here are pretty basic, particularly for those who are used to WC's which can take toilet paper. Here you have to put the paper in a small wastepaper basket next to the pan. Sorry guys, but that's how it is. At least it is a western-style WC that you can sit on, not a hole that you have to squat over.

The staff in the bar/breakfast room were very good at English, at least the ones taking the orders. Also the receptionists. There is free wi-fi in this bar and quite a number of PCs for guests to use, usually free, but at some modest hourly cost when we were there to balance supply and demand a bit. As usual, this budget hotel had much better internet than very upmarket ones.

  • Liked — Good location, close to metro, internet, free stamps for postcards, english grub, english-speaking staff.
  • Disliked — Basic bathroom
